The annual EARL HAIG STAFF APPRECIATION LUNCHEON is on June 16th. We still need potluck donations and volunteers for this event. Break out your favourite dish, or crack out your old waiting skills, and help us celebrate the fabulous Earl Haig Staff and all they do for our community. If you can volunteer or donate a potluck dish, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Luncheon items can be dropped off in the office on the day of. Be sure to label your containers with both the contents and your initials.
Speaker Dona Matthews, PhD, June 9 at 6:30: Whether you were someone who “just can’t do math” or a math superstar, come learn how to support a mindset that frees your child to approach math positively, enjoy it more and do better in math and related subjects. Free! Childcare is available. Thank you to the Ministry of Education for the Parents Reaching Out Grant.
Lost and Found: Please drop by the school or encourage your older student to really sort through the bins for those “missing” boots, hoodies, thermoses and other items which have left your home. Items will be bagged and donated before the school closes for the summer.
Spring Festival 2016: Another Wonderful Evening
What an Amazing Spring Festival! What a night! Ice cream, hotdogs and pulled pork, cotton candy and jars, retro games and crafts, cake walks and bake sales, samosas, chicken biryani, tattoos and face painting, of course the always entertaining highlight of the Talent Show! Another fabulous evening at Earl Haig PS.
Thanks to everyone who helped pull another successful Spring Festival together, particularly the dynamic duo, Hilary Gray, the festival coordinator and Jenn Haines the crew chief for the BBQ pit. As well Anne Marie and Christian at the Talent Show, and all of the volunteers who ran a table at the event. And finally the teachers and staff who did so much, including running the sales, helping collect donations, and the custodial staff who helped with the set up and the clean up.
Thanks to all … it is a huge amount of work and it could only take place with the support of a huge amount of people. As they say it takes a village to run a fun fair …
And thanks to the weather for holding off on rain.
While the final numbers aren’t in yet, it looks like we raised thousands of dollars, which will go a long way to fund school activities such as science in the school. We are looking forward to next year’s event. Save your jars and think about volunteering!
